Ford Park – so much more than just a park. Grow, learn, eat, play, celebrate!

Ford Park is a nine-acre green space with open fields, mature gardens and woodland, just a short stroll from Ulverston town centre.

Located at the foot of Hoad Hill, Ford Park is an extremely popular place for families and dog walkers.

 It has plenty to keep the kids occupied, including a natural playground that features a zip wire, climbing stilts, swings and of course Ford park has lots of open space for the kids to run around safely in too.

There’s also lots to see and learn. Around the park is a way marked path that leads you on a short walk around the grounds, and there are signs that provide information on the wildlife that can be found in Ford Park including bats, birds, butterflies and different species of trees.

Ford Park’s kitchen garden is amazing and has been developed as a community project, growing a wide range of vegetables, fruit and herbs.

The kitchen garden, mature gardens, orchard and plant nursery are all tended to by a dedicated group of fantastic volunteers who work tirelessly all year round to ensure that the park is clean, tidy and safe for all its visitors.

Volunteers are the life blood of the park, if you’d like to find out more about playing a part in Ford Park’s future click here.

Throughout the summer Ford Park is home to some wonderful events including Historic re-enactments, open air theatre productions and movie nights in the park. It also plays its part in many of Ulverston's Festivals too including the finale of Ulverston's Lantern Procession.

And if you’re feeling hungry then the popular Base restaurant opposite the kitchen garden has a wide range of tasty treats made with the finest local ingredients for you to enjoy!

Ford Park is open all year round.
